PHL stocks to move sideways after Yellen speech

By Victor V. Saulon, Sub-Editor

Posted on August 30, 2016

LOCAL SHARES are expected to continue moving sideways this week after Friday’s much awaited speech by the US Federal Reserve chair, which bolstered speculation of an interest rate hike next month, a move quickly downplayed by the local central bank chief.

Harry G. Liu, president of Summit Securities, Inc., said he expects no big rate increases in the US based on the signals given by Janet Yellen, who heads the US central bank.

He expects the local market to stay within a medium-term consolidation after Ms. Yellen’s speech in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which lifted optimism on the US economy and fueled an early climb in equities.

“She was just trying to look at the economic development [in the US] before she does any movement of interest rate,” Mr. Liu said about the speech, which some said lacked a clear guidance on when an increase may happen.

Even before any increase, local traders are hopeful that the US normalization path will have minimal impact on the Philippine Stock Exchange index, which closed 9.05 points or 0.12% lower on Friday at 7,845.49.

Mr. Liu also cited the statement of Amando M. Tetangco, Jr., governor of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, who said the country would not “sync” with any rate rise in the US and that Ms. Yellen’s statement was somehow expected.

“The way she said it, it is not going to be big whether it comes this year or next year, but to me her undertone is she’s not going to go for a big rate increase,” Mr. Liu said. “Here in Manila, the rate increase as Tetangco said, is acceptable.” He added that a small rate increase can be absorbed by the local market.

Mr. Liu also said that foreign exchange remittances from overseas Filipino workers as well as the proposed rise in infrastructure spending under the present administration would continue to boost the local economy.

“If you’re taking about the market, it’s still looking upward. It’s just a matter of time,” he said.

With Ms. Yellen’s speech out of the way, he said the PSEi was likely to keep moving sideways while “waiting for a positive factor.” But when that “good impact” takes place, he said the main index could breach the 8,150-mark.

Ahead of the speech, Joylin F. Telagen, research head at IB Gimenez Securities, said she was hopeful would be minimal “as the PSEi is on support level already.”

“I hope 7,800 holds… I’m still hopeful 8,200 is still within reach.”

On a week-on-week comparison, the PSEi finished lower by 1.08% to 7,845.49 from its close last Aug. 19. Foreign trading ended last week at a net selling of P3.54 billion, higher compared with the net P3.1 billion sold during the Aug. 15-19 week.
